All hospitals in the United States are required to post their price list
of standard procedures online. This pricing information, known as a charge
master or a charge table, is designed to help you make informed decisions
when selecting a hospital for treatment.
Humboldt General Hospital is committed to helping you understand your financial
responsibilities with regard to the medical services you receive. The
amount you are charged is determined in large part by the length of your
hospital stay (for inpatient care), procedures performed, required testing
(such as Radiology or Laboratory services), and any supplies, medications/pharmaceuticals
or special equipment that may be needed.
Please understand that specific charges provided in the charge master are
HGH’s base prices and do not necessarily reflect your financial
responsibility. Hospital charges are based on the type of care provided
and can differ from patient to patient for the same service. The differences
between patients are related to complexity and complications, or varying
treatments needed due to the patient’s health. Prices for surgeries
can vary depending on the surgical provider and the amount of time needed
in the operating room. Price does not include physician fees, additional
tests that may be needed, anesthesia and radiology professional fees.
This charge master provides some general guidance as to charges for the
various services we provide; however, the amounts listed in the charge
master do not factor in insurance, deductibles, copays, coinsurance, out-of-pocket
maximums or other variables. Therefore, the charges listed are never what
the patient pays. Your ultimate financial liability is more closely tied
to your insurance coverage and benefits than these charges.
We recommend that you speak with your health insurance provider to assist
you in determining your financial responsibility for any service you are
considering, or any service that may be provided to you at our hospital.
Humboldt General Hospital also provides resources to assist you in obtaining
a more accurate financial estimate based on your healthcare benefits related
to the services and the care you receive. Our representatives will be
happy to help you at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1130.
